We represent entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, public companies, private equity investors, and management groups in a full range of public and private securities transactions. We work with these clients as well as their officers, directors and outside accounting firms to resolve a wide range of financial matters including claims under SEC, Securities Act, ERISA, RICO, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and other matters. We also defend our clients in formal investigations and informal inquiries into insider trading, stock option dating and other market-manipulation allegations. Working proactively with our clients, we also help them avoid litigation by conducting risk assessments and liability-avoidance programs.
